All movie theaters are closed by governor’s order in our state (Washington) until December 14, 2020, but the following are movies planned for release in other parts of the United States during December.
With the second government mandated closure of movie theaters in 2020 it’s been a dreadful years for movie theater patrons and owners. We’ve somehow managed to see 45 or so new movies in theaters. That seems like a lot, all things considered, and there have been a small few good movies worth checking out. It’s been one of those years, all around, that we just want and need to put behind us.
For historical reference, we’re including the films originally planned along with their rescheduled release dates, several have been pushed to 2021.
All December 2020 movie release dates unless otherwise indicated are for the United States, the release dates in other countries can/may/will vary.

Dune, Top Gun 2: Maverick, West Side Story, Free Guy, Death On The Nile, Samaritan, Unchartered, all scheduled and delayed to 2021. All I can say about 2021 is if the pandemic subsides and moviegoers return, the theaters have a chance to rebound in a big way. The 2021 schedule is looking strong, bubbling over from Christmas 2020. Fingers crossed!
All My Life
Inspired by a true story.
Wonder Woman 1984
News Of The World
Tom Hanks is always worth checking out. He’s going western on us here.
Promising Young Woman
Saw a lot of previews in theaters for this one prior to the second shutdown. This is giving me a strong Harley Quinn like vibe, character-wise anyway. Like she’s about to go postal on all men. Maybe this is the Birds of Prey tale we should have gotten? It’s not Harley Quinn, just to be clear.
Saw a few previews in theater for this as well and the effects look great. It’s based on a videogame which I haven’t played yet, but interested in checking that out, too. Looking forward to seeing this and Wonder Woman 1984 most of these five films.
Which of these movies, if any, are you looking forward to seeing?
Of the list of movies above released or delayed, what are you most looking forward to seeing? Are you going to wait for these movies to come to streaming or venture into theaters? If you’re still in a holding pattern, it’s all good. Let’s chat about it in the comments.
As always, wishing you all happy viewing, whatever you’re watching!
